CPN-Maoist initiates unification process with UCPN (M)
KATHMANDU, FEB 05 – The CPN-Maoist has decided to initiate the process of unification with the UCPN (Maoist) in the wake of the decision of the ruling parties to seek resolution on the contentious issues through voting process at the Constituent Assembly (CA). The party took the decision underlining the urgency of unity among revolutionary forces of the people’s war, and citing that the agenda and value of the party’s drive towards change had fallen into an ambush. The CPN-Maoist is a breakaway faction of the UCPN (Maoist).
In a press conference held at the party’s central office at Buddhanagar here on Thursday, CPN-Maoist Chairman Mohan Baidya said the process of unification between the revolutionary forces had started. Baidya further said the forces of change were relegated to a minority following the second Constituent Assembly elections and the decision of merger was taken after Nepali Congress and CPN-UML discarded the past agreements and tried to exclude UCPN (Maoist) including other forces.
…The third one, party headed by Netra Bikram Chand Nepal Communist Party Maoist (without Dash) is moving one step ahead of the party led by Baidya. After declaring the other day that they will also target corrupts and agents, on Tuesday the party cadres forcefully grabbed 12 Bigha (5 Acre) of land owned by Gloccha Group in Kohalpur of Banke District.
The land originally purchased to establish industries to provide employment to thousands of workers and registered in one of the companies of the group is being plotted to sale for housing purpose, reports quoting party district secretary Man Bahadur Rokaya as saying. “The party strategy is to re-grab lands that were captured during the peoples’ revolt,” Rokaya said.
